Autumn Circle - Apples and pumpkins and leaves...oh my!
Oct. 4th - 29th
(our opening song stays with us all year)
by:Renee and Jeremy
(our centering verse changes with the seasons)
The Earth is firm beneath my feet
(bend down to touch the ground)
(step each foot into the ground)
All things to know and love.
(cross arms at chest)
A big apple fell and it gave her a knock
(tree lightly knocks the old woman's head)
It made the old woman go hippety-hop, made the old woman go hippety-hop.
I laugh ha ha and I laugh hee hee, I laugh all day for it pleases me (2x)
(still dancing and kicking your legs out)
Autumn winds are whirling leaves
But each one finds it's little nest,
and gently flutters down.
(1 hand up, all fingers showing)
The 1st one says "oh my, it's getting late!"
(1 finger up)
The 2nd one says "what's hiding over there?"
(2 fingers up)
The 3rd one says "there's something in the air."
I'm a pumpkin large and round, sitting on the cold cold ground
Now it's time to leave this place, take me home and carve a face.
Make some eyes
and a nose
and a mouth
I'm a Jack-O-Lantern now, not a pumpkin on the ground
Put a candle in for light, I will glow throughout the night.
I can turn myself and turn myself
and stop me when I will
I can reach high on my tippy toes
and hold myself quite still.
Our morning is done
Anyone else walk around the house this time of year and find these poor little half eaten apples?
